What is an Individual Plan of Study?
As students navigate through middle school, high school and into career and college, it is important they set educational goals and create a roadmap for success. This roadmap, or Individual Plan of Study, includes the development of a flexible career focus and an education plan that is clearly-defined and relevant to assure a successful transition to postsecondary education and/or the workforce.
What are the elements of an IPS?
The foundational elements of the individual plan of study are the career interests identified by the student through a career interest survey. A roadmap based on the student’s interests and talents can then be developed. Other parts of the IPS include graduation requirements, approved coursework for the student's educational and career goals, and developmentally-appropriate, work-based learning experiences.
Implementation in USD 265
During the 2021-2022 school year, USD 265-Goddard Public School has implemented IPS for students in grade 7-12.

Assessments play a vital role in the educational experience of each student by providing insight into the student’s progress towards the mastery of learning objectives.

Goddard Public Schools students have the ability to provide anonymous tips to keep schools safe. The district’s Crime Stoppers in Schools program has created the Speak Up program, which allows students, staff and parents the ability to send anonymous tips through a secure website, app or phone number. This program is in cooperation with Wichita Public Schools, and other area school districts. The funding for these services is provided by Crime Stoppers of Wichita and Sedgwick County a division of The Wichita Crime Commission.
Speak Up allows anyone to share information that will be anonymously received. The service offers submission of tips through a secure website, a smartphone app, and by phone. All messages are encrypted and routed through secure servers to protect the sender. The user is given an alias and a unique ID before the message is sent to the Speak Up Coordinator. This allows the user and the coordinator to have a two-way dialog without revealing the sender’s identity.
